Sofia Vergara may be a sex symbol now, but after she was first discovered she wanted to go back to school and be a dentist!
Sofia was discovered in her native Colombia at the age of 17, when a talent scout saw her walking on a beach and nabbed her for a Pepsi commercial.
The soda ad quickly rose to iconic levels, setting the now 38-year-old actress up for fame.
However, despite her obvious acting talent and glamorous looks, Sofia revealed she originally set out with more humble career plans.
â€œIt was huge. After [the commercial] they wanted me to act, to be a TV host, everything,â€ Sofia said. â€œBut I just wanted to get married [and] go to dentist school. I didnâ€™t finish though, because all of the opportunities [that arose].â€
